Picnic @ The Presidio, San Francisco

Well, now you know that we had bought all the earlier stuff from Whole Foods Market for our picnic at The Presidio. It was a cloudy day but we decided to still go ahead with it despite the drop in temperature.

Well, The Presidio itself is a park within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and within The Presidio itself is home to George Lucas' headquarters of Industrial Light and Magic and LucasArts. It was on George Lucas' 7 acre "Great Lawn" where we had on picnic - yes, it's open to the public! How nice of George! :o) But of course, there are security staff patrolling the grounds, so that things are kept orderly and proper. Nevertheless, mom and I were happy to have had the experience of not only visiting The Presidio but also picnicking in such a lovely area.

Yoda
I was thrilled to see Yoda in the park! He's my favourite character from Star Wars

Yoda @ the office
This time round though, Yoda was at "the office"! Hahaha....

Industrial Light and Magic & LucasArt
The office was closed, being the weekend and all. We walked right up to the office to take a look inside, through the glass door ...

Looking in...
...and saw Darth Vader and Jango Fett! We fled from the scene, fearing for our lives! :p

We then reached the Great Lawn area ....



Flowing Creek
... and stopped at the flowing creek where we finally caught our breath and picked this area for our picnic spot ...

Fia - Shiba Inu
M's Shiba Inu, Fia ... such a darling! She absolutely enjoyed frolicking around the park

Picnic Grub
The goodies being laid out - pasta, sushi, pizza, salads, cheese & crackers and more sushi! We enjoyed the food, sitting on the rocks nearby the creek. It was a wonderful feeling, eating as we hear the gentle flow of water going downstream

Picnic @ The Presidio
All in all, we truly had a fun filled day ....

Smile !
Even Fia agreed! ..... Smile :o)

Let your working ideas go for a picnic - sometimes the fresh air and ant bites are just what they need. Many great ideas were bitten a little at the beginning.
